Guidelines for Contributors

The Harvard Asia Pacific Review welcomes articles from scholars and experts on a range of topics related to the Asia-Pacific region. Please adhere to the following guidelines to ensure the fastest possible review and decision on all submissions.

1. Submissions must be written in English and no longer than 3000 words.
2. Submissions should be sent electronically as a Microsoft Word attachment (.doc) to the attention of the Editor-in-Chief via email. Please include complete contact information and the institution or organization with which you are affiliated.
3. Submissions should have a title and be presented in final form. The Harvard Asia Pacific Review does not print incomplete papers or work in progress.
4. Submissions should address some timely, relevant aspect of the Asia-Pacific region. Examples include policy analysis or recommendations, evaluation of major trends, or novel presentation of ideas or previous research.
5. For reviews of artistic work (e.g. new books, recordings, or performances), the subject of the review must be no more than six months old. Please include complete reference information for the subject.
6. Submissions must not have been previously printed, published, or otherwise presented in any form.
7. Submissions will not be returned.

Once the submission is received and acknowledged, the Review's editorial board will convene to evaluate the article. The board will decide whether to accept the article for publication or to reject the article. If accepted, the date of publication is at the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief and the content subject to further review and modification. In all cases, the decision of the editorial board is final.

Decisions will be announced to the corresponding author within four to six weeks of receipt.
